Beauty and beyond

Today, we live in a world who judges us by our superficial appearances. We are constantly shown that being young is beautiful or being fair skinned and slim is.

The society has stereotyped beauty into a superficial skin deep thing. For me, beauty is not just skin deep.

Yes outer beauty is a great thing and it's a good thing we strive to achieve it and look good.
You, me, everybody!

But for me, it is much more and hence I am writing a poem along the same lines :)


In the smile of a child
and the mother who smiles back
beauty shines

In the falling of leaves
during autmn
beauty pervades


In the darkness of night
where stars shine bright
beauty deepens



In the dark colour of beautiful skin
which is weaved with a heart of goodness and gold
beauty beams




In the scars of a wounded soldier
beauty bleeds














In the courage of a social activist
beauty stands tall

Beauty is an act of kindness
done selflessly

Beauty is holding the hands
with someone you love

Beauty is an eighty year old
smiling happily through her wrinkles

Beauty is in being unconventional

In being the best you can be

A beautiful face may or may not last a decade
But a heart with humantiy and generosity
Shines through centuries..

Beauty is in the integrity of a woman
and the mettle of a man

Beauty which transcends fading appearances
and weakening bodies
which glows through the intelligent mind

and stands through the storm of hate and greed
and jealousy and manipulation

Only such a person,who's inner beauty is unshaken
through the turmoils of life
is truly beautiful

Be beautiful..
Be true'...
Be you...
